Mitch and Sao being involved in the World Cup games and rightly deserve a few more weeks off. Has anyone heard when Hoy and Clifford will arrive? IMO they should be here asap, seeing they’re both integral to the rebuild, by all means let them return to Oz for the holiday break.


I thought with saucy sue arriving at Rovers the past couple of days that Hoy and Clifford would have been on the same flight.

Agreed I would have thought Hoy and Clifford (particularly Hoy) would have been here by now to start the process of getting used to new surroundings, team mates and get some training down on the field. As you say no issue letting them go back to Australia for the Christmas break.

Strange choice of words from Houghton in that Humberside interview...

In what way?

We are a Top 4 club, but a bottom 4 team.
Re: Pre season. : Fri Nov 18, 2022 2:38 pm  
I have no problem with the players using that sort of mindset as motivation internally to be better.

It doesn’t however sit well with me having a senior player come out and openly admitting that he thinks we’re a bottom four side. All whilst the club is in the middle of probably it’s most vital membership campaigns in recent years. There’s a feel good factor round the club at the moment, all be it the usual pre season hype, but it is justified. There’s a time and place for comments like Danny’s and imo these where both wrong.

The club can't win then can they? They come out saying Top 4 is the goal, then we fail and the fans come out saying that it's all talk. Houghton comes out and says that the league position doesn't lie, we are a bottom of the table side. That is the motivation they need to use this year to perform better, and more consistently. Damned if they do, damned if they dont

Pretty open and honest stuff from Houghton.

Obvious that Hodgson lost control of the dressing room. Especially when you hear Houghton talk about having a strong guy at the top.

He was correct in what he said. As it stands we ARE a bottom four side. We finished the season ninth. He never said we will finish in the bottom four next season.
